A comically ridiculously altered version of the classic tale, in which Don Quixote is victorious over his imaginary enemies and emits Tarzan-like yells of triumph.

Storyline

Flip the Frog jumps happily from lily pad to lily pad, crossing the pond in order to get to an outdoor nightclub in the forest. Flip is the featured performer, and the crowd of critters is happy to see him. As the insect orchestra plays below, Flip dances on a tree stump. Later, he plays the piano as a mouse accompanies him on the violin. The piano cries during a sad song, and Flip has to blow its nose. Flip offends his instrument by caressing its leg with a bit too much familiarity. The piano kicks Flip, and the frog retaliates by punching the keys as he plays. Flip's violent performance leads to a crashing finish. Written by J. Spurlin

Flip's Debut
18 August 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Here it is! The very first appearance of Flip the Frog. Flip, however, instead of being a more anthropomorphic frog, is a frog-like frog (who can do human things like play piano). He entertains some pond residents with a musical number on a piano accompanied by a Mickey Mouse look-alike on the violin. Although this cartoon does not have too much humor or excitement in it, I still feel that it is beautiful to view. This cartoon and TECHNOCRACKED were the only two Flip the Frog cartoons produced in color (although I have yet to see the original color version of TECHNOCRACKED)using the two-strip Cinecolor process.
